Therefore, we replicated and extended previous research by determining the individual effects and preferences of differential reinforcement and response cost under both group and individualized conditions. The current study provided a brief 12 week, 1 hour per week, individualized parent-child education program to, Twenty years of research on early intensive treatment using applied behavior analysis (ABA) for children with autism has consistently produced robust effects. Clinicians, naive to parent group membership status, rated BAP, Deficits in attention, communication, imitation, and play skills reduce opportunities for children with autism to learn from natural interactive experiences that occur throughout the day. Heffernan. Researchers have shown that both differential reinforcement and response cost within token economies are similarly effective for changing the behavior of individuals in a group context (e.g., Donaldson, DeLeon, Fisher, & Kahng, 2014; Iwata & Bailey, 1974). Applied Behaviour Analysis (ABA): An effective approach used to understand and change behaviour, and teach new skills. A functional behaviour assessment (FBA) identified that the behaviour was maintained by automatic reinforcement. The results demonstrated that the teaching interaction procedure resulted in all participants acquiring targeted social skills, maintaining the targeted social skills, and generalizing the targeted social skills. This last step continues until, the learner meets a specified criterion. contingency analysis (IISCA; Hanley et al., Functional communication training (FCT) is an, intervention in which appropriate communicative, behavior is taught as a replacement for aberrant, vention to be successful, a functional assessment, must first occur to determine the function of the, mined, an appropriate communicative response, can be taught that serves the same function as the, disabilities were taught desired requests for, escape from task demands (negative reinforce-, ment) or teacher attention (positive reinforce-, conditions to determine the social function of, tion or escape from a demand).
